C3180 feeding paper but not printing

The drivers are up to date. It worked fine until I changed the black ink cartlidge. I've gone thru all the troubleshooting avenues I can find, yet it keeps feeding paper through without printing. Any ideas?

Thanks

    The printer is feeding with standard A4 paper just until have way. Then printer stops and the power button starts to blink If I try to turn of the printer it spit out the paper and takes a new sheet. Power button stays blinking until power supply is disconnected.

    I have just about the same problem, mine did that and then every job went on que and while trying to print says error, pstopdffilter stopped unexpectedly with a status 1.  What the hell does that mean, and how do I fix it?  HP customer service sucks.  Hopefully you guys will be of some help.   :)

    I have the same problem the other guy did. The paper feeds through until halfway, and then the light starts to blink and nothing comes out. The check paper light doesn't even come on anymore. It won't print or copy; I haven't tried to scan.

This happens regularly in some models when the alignment of paper is not done correctly. If the cartridge does not have a good print quality, the scanner can not correctly read the alignment and alignment repeated several times until you get it right.
Check the alignment with cartridges in excellent condition.

My printer has the blue light on the lightbult and low toner (but ink is fine) - it will not print anything. The stuff sits in the print queue and i have to eventually delete it. The report will print...


My work-around for this problem is to feed paper in manually through the front. I turn the printer off and make sure all paper is out of the printer. When you turn the printer on - and the blue light stays lit (if it doesn't turn it off and wait - I've had to wait quite some time sometimes).. then manually feed 1 sheet of paper in the manual feed tray at the front. When the paper is inserted... you should be fine to print - and keep feeding paper in until you get your job. If you miss - you might need to hit the "continue" (triangle button)..
I've been trying to find out why mine locks up - and why it keeps jamming - but this is a tried and proven menthod - althought it is annoying it might help you for now.. Good luck

Black ink smears everything.


you may have to clean the print head. since the jam cause the smear, and there still have some ink left on the print head.
you wouldn't get aclean copy till all of the ink trace are gone.

Paper Jam Photosmart C3180


Normal 0 I suggest you get a sheet of Card Stock (Heavy paper) and place it in the feed way. Then press the print button applying a slight amount of pressure on the Card Stock so it will feed through the printer. The reason for this is in some cases I have been able to clear the paper track of debris that was deposited there over time.
Worth a try, as I have fixed a number of printers this way, saving costly repairs.
Hope this helps. Bud

Nothing comes out when I print


Epson 777 will not print. No paper jam. Power light flashing; red error light on steady. Paper does not feed; if paper supply is placed deeper in feed, entire paper supply (about 12 sheets) feeds thru as one sheet normally would , without printing.
